Christmas preparation

Hello - I hope you're all OK and not too over wrought with your Christmas preparation. I've noticed blog postings have slowed down - which isn't surprising considering women do tend to have the most to do around Christmas. Honestly I'm not going to moan about it - it's just how it is for most of us. I'm doing OK - so far. I've managed to write out most of my cards and get the presents wrapped that need to be posted this week. I do still need to do a bit more shopping - but nothing too major.

There is a reason why I'm cracking on with things and that's because my mum is coming to stay with us over Christmas as she'll be recovering from a hysterectomy due to a prolapse womb. I had booked two weeks leave to sew - but as my sewing room has been converted into the spare bedroom now - things have changed. I will still be sewing (as otherwise I think I'd go mad) but it will need a bit more planning and I won't be able to leave it out as I would do in the sewing room. But - that's the way things go isn't it and we juts have to try to make the best of it.

you sound very organised about Christmas - and I'm inspired by your positive attitude to not having your sewing room - I hope you get lots done anyway and enjoy having your mum with you

Oh yes! I posted my cards and packages yesterday - Hooray! I hope your mom has a full recovery, and that you all have a blessed holiday!

I hate it when my well laid plans go awry. (sigh) I guess that's life. I hope that you find a way to get all your sewing done. It sounds like you have grand plans.

Oh Sarah, I hope your mom's surgery and recovery go well -- what a big help you will be to her I'm sure. Hopefully you'll still be able to squeeze some little sewing in!
